Joy Road to Locust Fork section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.
CLASS IV 1 miles
This section of Big Scirum Creek in Blount County is 1 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class IV section of whitewater. The average Alabama whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states, so don't forget that many runs in this state are not easy. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping
in your car. The Joy Road to Locust Fork section is the only paddling section along Big Scirum Creek. A good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors have people coming from far and near. The nature scenery of Alabama
and the cool fresh water will make you feel great. This is a very short section so you'll have to walk back to the start over and over.
